Brad Barr To Help Celebrate Pub Records Debut

Today marks the release of the debut recording from Pub Records, live “ eleven ":mailto:eleven volume 1 which features performances culled from many great evenings of music at Matt Murphys Pub in Brookline, Massachusetts. The club has put on a strikingly consistent array of improvised music for several years, and this release captures some favorite moments. ‘We are lucky to have such talent in Boston. National acts like The Slip, John Brown’s Body and Club dElf have made Murphy’s a home away from home. Pub Records founder Jason Waddleton says, This album is a result of them sitting in, chilling out and playing with each other. You can hear collaborations from Club dElf with The Slip and John Brown’s Body with Fully Celebrated Orchestra as well as a host of other equally talented musicians including rising star Toussaint. It is unreal what goes on each week at the Pub and this album represents some of that magic.’

Beginning tonight, Waddleton and Matt Murphys will host twelve nights of music featuring performances from artists included on the _live “ eleven_ ":mailto:eleven disc. The Slips Brad Barr, will kick it off tonight (June 1). Barr performs announced and surprise gigs frequently at the pub, and he appears on the CD performing I Hate Love (another Nathan Moore lyrical gem) with his brother Andrew. The Barrs also perform on the discs Public House track, as well as on a mystery cut, and an outro track. The impressive collection also includes live performances from Geoff Scott (Miracle Orchestra, Club dElf), Toussaint & The China Band, Mr Rourke, Timo Shanko, Johnny Trama, DJ Axel Foley, and members of John Browns Body, Club dElf and the Fully Celebrated Orchestra.
